    Looking for a great value red? The Assisi Rosso from Umbria is just that! This Sangiovese-dominant wine is complex to the core. With all the flashy, wine making techniques out there, the winemakers at Sportoletti have allowed the Assisi to be naturally delicious. Allowing that has brought a seriously complex, fresh, full-bodied and balanced wine to our glass. It's outstanding--especially for the price!

    When we first tasted this we thought it was a much pricier wine as it certainly over delivers. Made from fifty percent Sangiovese along with Merlot and Cabernet, the Sportoletti Rosso showcases fragrant red berry fruits along with hints of earth and leather reminiscent of Bordeaux. It drinks perfectly now and we're picking up some for our own cellars. Whether you're an Italian wine fan or searching for exceptional values from the old world, this outstanding red is certain to please.
